we've used Citadines apartments around the world on several of our trips; and have stayed at the Kyoto apartment twice before (2012, 2016). Its easily accessible -- get off at Gojo, just 1 subway stop from Kyoto Stn on the Karasuma Line. And its a 30-minute walkabout radius to many places/sites. The apartment internals are right for 2 persons, with...

We stayed at Citadines Karasuma-Gojo Kyoto in a one bedroom apartment. I could not reserve the apartment online -- only studios were available. However, I contacted the hotel and they were able to secure it for me. I believe they have only one one-bedroom apartment. The apartment was great with kids. So very convenient! We had a small kitchen and...

We really enjoyed our stay in Kyoto, a wonderful, beautiful city. The Citadines was perfectly located and provided a great center for our exploration of the surrounding sights. We would absolutely stay again. The room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Easily accessible to public transport, it was a great choice.

We booked a Studio apartment and it was exactly as described on the website. It has everything you need for a pleasant stay in Kyoto. The location is quite central, although be forewarned that it is at least a 20-30 minute walk to some of the famous attractions, such as Kiyomizu-dera temple and the Higashiyama area. There is a subway...

I have always look forward to Kyoto visit. The apartment is well located, either by subway or a nice walk to shijo area or Kyoto station. With the wonderful produce of Japan plus the well appointed kitchen, I have always enjoyed a leisurely paced breakfast or buy some nice meat for dinner when I cannot get restaurant for dinner. I...

Excellent serviced apartment with friendly staff and good location to everything that is Kyoto. The subway was a (very) short walk away and the property is only a easy stroll into the main shoppiing area.

The female staff had listened carefully to my request and swiftly made a restaurant reservation for us. Her assistance enabled us to enjoy a very delicious Ryokan meal. The cleanliness of the room was impressive, and the pillows were wonderful after a tired travel.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
